Last month, our Xbox and Game Pass community kept us all entertained as they dove into the pirate curse of the Outlaws from no man’s sky update and The Blight expedition. It was a joy to see them set eyes on their first solar sail boat and try to add one of these spectacular vessels to their fleet.
Today marks the start of our seventh expedition. It’s called Leviathan and, true to form, we’re mixing things up again and bringing something with a little more danger, but just as big a reward.
As the name suggests, Leviathan is an expedition beast. Travelers will have to use all their survival skills to help Specialist Polo unravel the mystery of a curious loop that has cursed the space-time continuum. He suspects that this strange phenomenon can be traced back to a wondrous and almost mythical space creature, the Leviathan, but he will need the help of the community to fully understand and remove the curse.
In their efforts to aid Polo in his investigation, players will dice with death on more than one occasion, but, in roguelike fashion, each death allows players and their fellow expedition members to contribute to the effort of the expedition. community and brings uplift. of the curse closer and closer.
Each reincarnation resets individual progress, but travelers have the opportunity to start over with a procedurally generated initial loadout whose quality only improves as community effort increases, as do the rewards on offer for embarking on it. adventure.
The Whale Stalker Cloak, a miniature organic frigate for the player base, and a temporary spaceship trail are just some of the loot to be received along the way, culminating in the final reward, the first living frigate, a imposing and spectacular tentacled beast, to add to your fleet of freighters.
We are very excited to launch the Leviathan Expedition for Xbox and Game Pass players today. It’s been a lot of fun creating something that feels a little different from previous seasons.
Elsewhere in the team, work is underway on more content updates and we can’t wait to show you what we have in the works. The Leviathan Expedition starts today and will last approximately 6 weeks.
Our journey continues.
